Accelerating Orthodontics – Faster Tooth Movement with Pulsatile Forces

Presenter: Dr. Straty Righellis Release Date: 11/22/13
Credits:  1 CEU   Reviewed: 2024     Expiration Date: 11/22/27
AGD Subject Code: 370
CE Supporter: Viva Learning

Functionality and esthetics are key considerations in patients requesting, and orthodontists recommending, orthodontic treatment. However, patients may elect to forego orthodontic treatment due to the cost, discomfort and duration of treatment. Many methods have been explored and developed to reduce the duration of treatment. Most recently, a device has been developed that utilizes the concept of pulsatile force application to accelerate orthodontic treatment. Dr. Straty Righellis will review the research on accelerated tooth movement and demonstrate the clinical efficacy of pulsatile forces in accelerating treatment with the AcceleDent® Aura device.

Upon completion of this CE activity, participants will:
1. Become familiar with the biological mechanisms of orthodontic tooth movement.
2. Understand the role static and pulsatile forces play in the modulation of bone physiology.
3. Learn how to incorporate an accelerated treatment plan into practice with AcceleDent® Aura.   ( disclaimer, bio and commercial disclosure )
